All the World's a Stage

We recently acquired antique light fixtures from the Cyrus Northrop Memorial Auditorium on the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities campus, including pendants, flushmounts, and the enormous chandelier that once hung above the original auditorium! They were left over from the 2014 renovation, and we are happy to help them find a new home. These pieces are full of history, having seen the likes of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., the Peoples Republic of China Ballet troupe, and Herbie Hancock grace the Northrop stage. The craftsmanship is unparalleled, as can be seen in the picture below of the chandelier being cleaned in the 1970's.

Due to their size, some of these magnificent light fixtures would do better in large rooms or outdoor venues. However, antique pendants and flush mounts can make excellent accent pieces in indoor spaces as well.
